Below are some pics of the end result of the new Ironman struts install................I am very happy with the result as I now have a truck that sits level and rides and drives a whole lot better.
We also made up some new brackets for the light bar so it is now tucked under the roof rack and it no longer lights up the bonnet.
1st pic is a close up of the CV angle which is pretty good.
The next two are self explantory
Now the front suspension measured from bottom of 17" rim to the top of the flare (just like I did before)
Drivers front 806mm which is a gain of 46mm
Passenger front 811 mm which is a gain of 41mm
Also as a random measurement the bottom of the winch opening on the bullbar is now 85mm higher than it used to be.
You can't really see it but Ironman sell a spacer which sits under the spring cup/seat (you can just see the nickely plated thing under the spring cup/seat) - I have installed a 10mm one and looking back I don't think it was needed but it is in now.
According to my mates measurements and calcs he thinks that with the strut and the point it is on the bottom of the wishbone for each 1mm of extra height at that point you get 2.11mm of extra height at the hub. All the stuff I had read said it was 1.6:1 so that is why I put the spacer in................. and why it probably wasn't necessary.
